Under Construction: Gorgeous Gelato, Shanghai Tokyo, EastEnder, Otto East

A few under construction updates:

  • Shanghai Tokyo provided a draft menu (see page 59) as part of their liquor license application. The Portland City Council will be voting on the application on Monday.
  • The restaurant moving in to the old Norm’s space on Middle Street was originally slated to be called The East End Grill, but the owners have rebaptized it as the EastEnder. The sign in the window promises “Bold New England Flavor”.
  • Work on the future site of Gorgeous Gelato is underway at 434 Fore Street.
  • The Press Herald reported earlier this week that Otto Pizza is scheduled to open their new East End location on the day after Thanksgiving.
